In this article, we want to talk about the iPhone not charging, ios 14 battery drain, and iPhone overheating.
Is your iPhone not charging and not recognizing the charger? Even if you connect the charger, the iPhone does not charge and does not show charging signals on the display? Can’t charge iPhone battery.
the iPhone is not charging, the battery is almost zero percent and at any moment the phone will shut down because there is no more charge left. Unfortunately, you are not the only iPhone owner to report this problem, and for this reason, I thought of creating a guide that can help you solve the most common problems and that, if connected to the charger, iPhone does not recharge the battery and it would seem not to give energy signals coming from the Lightning or 30 pin connector.
We just have to try some solutions to try to solve this problem and fortunately, there are various attempts that we can perform directly from home, before contacting a technician. So if the iPhone is not charging, read the suggestions carefully in the order they are offered to you.
The first thing to do is turn the device off and on again, then do a simple reboot. Disconnect the charger from the iPhone, press and hold the lock key until iOS asks you to permanently shut down the device, confirm the shutdown. Wait a few seconds and turn iPhone back on, when the operating system has loaded all the apps and the Home screen appears, connect the charger to the device.
If the iPhone is not charging, continue reading the next solutions.
The forced restart is often of fundamental importance for iOS devices, so I refer you to this article on how to hard reset the iPhone where you will be explained step by step how to perform the forced restart which often solves various problems on iPhone and iPad.
Does updating to iOS 14 make the iPhone battery worse? Online comments and reports emerge that indicate problems with autonomy, undermined by updates.
Problems for iPhones updated to iOS 14: several reports are emerging online regarding the latest Apple update, iOS 14.2, guilty of worsening the battery and leading to a decrease in autonomy and performance on different models.
But is it really so? For now, there is no official news but the battery of the iPhone always suffers a little with the passing of updates, especially with regard to the older models. On forums and social networks, on all the official Apple one, reports from users multiply who report various problems on battery life after updating iPhone to iOS 14.2.
It would not be the first time that Apple has implemented updates to different models which then, in reality, lead to a general deterioration of performance (in the name of that increasingly hindered planned obsolescence).
iPhone: Battery gets worse with iOS 14.2 update?
The reports and testimonies scattered on the web are wasted but they focus in particular on the foreign forum of Apple dedicated to developers (Apple Developer Forum): in general, there is a decrease of almost 50% over 30 minutes of use of the iPhone after having updated to the latest version of the operating system.
All the negative opinions have the same element in common: the iPhone downloads faster on the same usage time as the other outdated iPhones. In the Apple forum, we talk about different models among which iPhone SE 2020 stands out, which records the worst weakening among the latest generation devices (and excessive overheating is also reported) and recharge that is too fast in the face of normal chargers and not enabled to this mode (which raises the suspicion of faster battery wear).
Summer brings a general rise in temperatures and in these moments having a smartphone that is too hot may not depend only on the climate. What to do if iPhone gets too hot?
It is not a widespread problem, but if you notice that the iPhone is hotter than usual, it is necessary to intervene: it is symptomatic of something wrong and fortunately, there are simple operations that could solve the problem and avoid malfunctions.
Hot iPhone means, first of all, processor stress; it is a phenomenon that occurs when the CPU works intensely, perhaps because there are some too many apps running, or a process open in the background. From the pages of OSXdaily, a series of tips to solve.
After an update
The first is simply to wait in case you experience an iPhone overheating right after an iOS update. In this case, it takes several minutes for the entire operating system to stabilize. After the update seems complete, in fact, iPhone needs a “running in” period to resume its normal operation. If after hours from the update the terminal is still hot it is good to move on to the next advice.
I work in the background
Closing background apps can be the easiest way to put an end to overheating. It is possible, in fact, that some too many applications, or some malfunctioning ones, generate an excessive workload; to close them, simply double-tap the Home button to call up multitasking, followed by a slide upwards on the app you want to close.
Refreshing refreshes the data and the phone
If this still does not solve the overheating problem, it is possible that some application installed on the iPhone, often in use, is “buggy”. In this case, it is advisable to check for updates available in the App Store. It will be sufficient, then, to open the Apple digital store directly from the iPhone, consult the updates page and click on the Update button in the single offending app, or on the Update all button, so as to always keep the applications on your terminal updated.
Use a fresh system
It is also possible that the iOS version in use has malfunctioned. And then, in this case, it is possible to rely on the always punctual system updates. Apple quickly notices if something is wrong with the distributed software release and often manages to release updates to fix it in record time.
To keep your terminal always updated, simply open the Settings, General, Software Update panel.
Also in the Settings panel, in case the above recommendations were not able to solve the iPhone overheating problem, the Reset item is available. At first, it is advisable to try the Reset Settings item, which is less invasive and does not delete any content on the device.
